The airport is the proof for the successful mobilization of private capital in developing transport infrastructure. It is expected to create a crucial force for Quang Ninh Province to call for large investment for fast and sustainable development.   

Construction of the airport, invested by a private enterprise - the Sun Group – in the BOT formula, started in September 2015 in Doan Ket commune of Van Don district.

The airport will have an annual capacity of 2-2.5 million passengers by 2020, which will increase to 5 million by 2030. 

Set to cover more than 326ha by 2020, the airport is comprised of support facilities, a two-module terminal, and other functional areas. A cargo terminal is expected to be built by 2030 with a capacity of at least 51,000 tons.
